CB Installed!

I finally got around to purchasing and installing my CB. I ended up buying the following:
  1. Cobra 75 wxst 40ch CB Radio
  2. Cobra AC 702 4ft microphone extension cable
  3. FireStick K-8R18 18ft Fire-Flex coax cable with Fire-Ring
  4. FireStick K4 Stud mount
  5. 3' FireStick2 Black
  6. Astatic SWR meter
  7. Saguaro CB Antenna Mount

I took the basic design off of the Saguaro CB mounting bracket and made my own. I was pretty happy with the way everything turned out. Installation was pretty easy all in all. One day I installed the radio and mic. The next i did the antenna since they shipped at different times... 18' of coax was just enough to get to where i mounted the box. I bought the radio I did because I wanted one that had weather and I like the small footprint that it had with the controls being intergrated with the mic. Plus the fact that I can remove the mic and put it in another car by just buying another transmitter box. Along with the weather capabilities it turned out to be the CB that suited me best.

Re: CB Installed!

Yeah I bet you did! I have a CB but I only use the PA system feature. I don't even have an antenna hooked up...want to do it eventually for easy communication with friends mudding.

Yea I got mine for the off-road communication and my annual cross country trip to Wisconsin. I'm ordering a 2' Firestick for daily use since I can't pull into the garage with the 3' on just a few inches short! But I will use that 3' for off road and long trips.

Re: CB Installed!

Just one tip though,replace those 4 screws on the antenna mount with stainless ones.I have a mount like that and the screws rusted up pretty quick and even started to make the holes a little rusty.I replaced them with stainless ones and put a dab of sealer on em before installing.No problems since.
